I have lived in Denver for 7 years, and grew up in Nederland Colorado. I eat all around the state, I know a lot of hidden gems, and want to share them with you. I am always looking for good restaurants and I am sick of digging and digging for that information, come on Colorado lets share what we are eating!!!!!

Hacienda Real outside of Denver
So occasionally I eat in a different city, my friend Brendan moved back from Australia and on 05/05/2011 or Cinco De Mayo we headed off to a Mexican restaurant in Frisco Colorado.
This is a family restaurant that is located in a strip mall right next to Safeway. When we walked in the first thing the hostess said was, "Do you have a reservation?" and we were very surprised since this is the slow season in the mountains right now, we said no and the hostess directed us to sit in the bar. We were given chips and salsa and a pitcher of water which was nice. Our waiter came over quickly, even though they were busy, and took our drink order, I asked for a margarita no salt, I got a margarita with salt. When I told the waiter I asked for no salt he wiped the lime around the rim and said, "ok no salt now!" This seemed very rude, and to be honest the staff was kind of rude, so I will likely not be going back to this restaurant.
you can still see the salt on the rim
Brendan and I both ordered the Burrito Colorado, it has large pieces of steak in a chili sauce stuffed with refried beans and covered in cheese and onions. Overall pretty good burrito but I honesty would have liked one from Qdoba better and that is just a 5 minute drive from this place. I was not terribly impressed with this place, but it also might have just been a busy night for them. Will I try it again? Maybe, if someone wants to pay for my dinner.
